Starts off with a harsh blast of hairspray before it starts calming down. There is rubbery sea salt accord that's slightly sweet. The slightly sweet part is supposed to be bergamot, lemons, limes and watermelon but it's swamped by "hairspray sea salt" to the point that it's hard to decipher. It's basically like headache inducing paper with hairspray and slightly sweet. Yuck!
Brezza di mare? More like brezza di niente or sumthin, tss tss. What a shame, too. I totally need some Italian in my wardrobe because I can pronounce it.
Anyway, this isn't much more than a heavy dose of white musk and some fruity overtones. There isn't anything aquatic about it, but it is a "fresh" scent. It's also a bit unique, so it has that going for it. Unfortunately, although it's not bad, it leaves me feeling completely indifferent.
Vacation marine scent on a summer day... not a manly "deadliest catch" sailor on the rough seas kind of scent.
Starts off with a touch of watermelon, and within 10 minutes it changes a lot. Some "melon" scents can be annoying, this is not. After the watermelon a salty marine scent comes takes over. And then within 10 minutes, it dries down to fuzzy and soft and slightly sweet mixing with a ocean and bergamot.
I like it. Very unisex, but perhaps leaning on the feminine side. It doesn't have sharp synthetic edges like some other ocean scents. I'd maybe buy a bottle of this after my bottle of Le Labo's Neroli runs out -- In terms of wardrobe, I file them in the same aquatic slot.
I recommend this to someone looking for a well made and relaxing, summer marine scent. It's also not that expensive.
